Awaking at the crack of dawn, 6:00 am, we set out for another day of adventuring on the high seas. We shot out of the Saints on our way to Guadeloupe having breakfast underway, making 8 knots on sail power alone. After an MTE lab, where we figured out our speed over water using only old bread and the length of the boat we pulled into Guadeloupe and dropped anchor. After putting the boat away and quick lunch we dinghied over to Pigeon Island for a fantastic dive, at the Jacque Cousteau Marine Park. During the dive we were lucky enough to see a big old sea turtle and a large octopus. After that, was a bit of free time, where some people went ashore to gather data for a project and a few others stayed on board. Tonight, we’re watching a blue planet video and setting sail for Antigua at 10:00 pm to arrive by morning.
